GCW Capital Group Principal, Tom Waring, has been elected Chairman of the Board for The Lawsuit Reform Alliance of New York (LRANY). In announcing Mr. Waring’s selection LRANY Executive Director, Tom Stebbins, noted the organization’s requirements.
“LRANY is the only advocacy organization in New York solely dedicated to tort and civil justice reform. When considering qualifications for our board chair we look for an active member of the business community as well an engaged supporter of philanthropic organizations. Tom Waring is an experienced and committed participant in both realms, which allows him a powerful perspective on the ways New York State’s notoriously litigious environment harms communities in Western New York and throughout the state. He has also been an outspoken proponent for lawsuit reform on a statewide basis for a number of years. That’s why our members felt he was the best choice to represent us and are honored to welcome Tom as our board chair.”
Founded in 2010, LRANY is a nonpartisan not-for-profit association of businesses, healthcare providers, membership organizations, and concerned taxpayers committed to fixing New York’s civil justice system to help create jobs and energize the state’s economy. According to newly-appointed Chairman Waring, the organization’s purpose and achievements align with both his professional perspective and business expertise.
“I started working in the financial services industry almost four decades ago and, even then, I was a strong public advocate against frivolous litigation that hurt small business owners and individuals and wasted exorbitant amounts of taxpayer money. When I first became aware of LRANY, I immediately became a part of their organization and have since partnered in bringing to light and fighting against irresponsible lawsuits. As board chair, I look forward to advancing the LRANY cause and protecting residents across New York State from such damaging and costly legal actions.”
